AirPop Kids masks are designed especially for children aged 3 to 12-years-old and have been given the seal of approval by the BSI Kitemark scheme, alongside the Pocket mask – ideal for teens, older students and teachers
As thousands of children return to school next month, and with mask wearing recommended in secondary schools and higher education, how to keep youngsters safe from the risks of COVID-19 will be at the forefront of parent’s minds.
Award-winning air wearables brand AirPop has designed a range of masks with a two-way barrier giving children and teachers the defence they need against airborne threats, such as COVID-19, as well as providing optimum comfort and breathability.
The Kids mask, for children aged 3 to 12-years-old, has been specially engineered to suit smaller features, whilst delivering over 99% particle filtration.
AirPop’s Pocket mask also provides the same level of protection and offers the perfect solution for teenagers at secondary school, those in higher education such as college, and teachers and support staff.
The Government recommends the use of face coverings in Higher Education, Further Education and secondary schools.
Both the Kids and Pocket ranges fit in AirPop’s handy case, available in black and white and ideal for children to store their mask safely and hygienically in-between uses. The vent at the top of the case allows any moisture to evaporate naturally between wears, keeping the mask dry and fresh, ready for its next use.
The Kids and Pocket masks have been awarded the prestigious BSI Kitemark, acknowledging AirPop has gone above and beyond to ensure its products provide appropriate levels of protection.
Available in a range of colourful finishes such as pink, blue and white, the Kids mask, alongside the Pocket mask, is fitted with filters which last up to 40 hours. The Pocket is available in black and white.
Made of hypoallergenic materials as well as non-toxic dyes, both masks are also ideal for sensitive skin, even when wearing for long periods of time.
The masks have a unique 3D structure which creates a canopy of air, keeping them off the face for effortless breathability. Paired with low resistance materials, the range delivers unrestricted airflow for easy breathing, making them comfortable to wear all day.
Each mask is fitted with an ultra-soft, ergonomic foam nose seal cushion which conforms around the nose and promotes proper alignment, reducing fogging of eyewear for glasses wearers.
Reinforced, welded ribs provide compression strength during wear but also act as flexible folding joints for easy collapsibility when stowing.
AirPop Founder, Chris Hosmer, said: “For parents, protecting our children is always our number one priority. After my own children suffered the ill-effects of air pollution, respiratory health became hugely important to me. I created AirPop to protect people from the increasing threats posed by airborne pollution and to give people control over what they breathe.
“As children start to return to school, it’s important we take every precaution to protect them and those around them from transmitting COVID-19.”

The AirPop Difference
AirPop delivers superior performance by solving three key issues that plague most masks: fit, filtration and breathability. All of the materials used to manufacture our masks are tested by accredited 3rd party labs to exceed the World Health Organisation and FDA medical mask material performance standards.
Fit: An accurate, close fit is essential to prevent the inhalation and exhalation of small particles and droplets. AirPop masks feature a patented soft-seal and frame that responds to different fit profiles to help ensure a snug, but comfortable fit. And the tented, 3-D Air Dome shape keeps the filter away from the face, increasing airflow and improving breathability and comfort.
Filtration: When it comes to harmful pollutants, size matters. Anything smaller than 2.5 microns is known as “fine particulate matter” (PM 2.5) – think airborne bacteria, for example. AirPop masks create a barrier down to 0.1 microns with greater than 99% effectiveness at this scale. Our unique combination of 4-layer filter material provides an effective 2-way barrier against particles and droplets.
Breathability: Superior breathability is also vital – consumers won’t wear what isn’t comfortable or doesn’t work. AirPop masks “give and take” in sync with your natural breath. And they have four layers of protection – from the droplet-resistant, non-woven outer layer to the filter and skin-friendly inner layer to ensure security and comfort.
AirPop is the world’s first Air Wearables company. Since 2015, the company has harnessed filtration science and technology to build high-performance products that deliver unrivalled comfort and breathability for millions of people worldwide. AirPop masks deliver superior performance by solving three critical issues: fit, filtration and breathability. The revolutionary mask design includes a patented seal ensuring a secure fit, while the 3D Air Dome increases airflow for better breathability and comfort. Furthermore, AirPop masks combine a 4-layer filter material to create a barrier down to 0.1 microns, and their filters deliver greater than 99% effectiveness.
